This was the best run the following morning after some more tweaks! The ambient temp was 25 degrees so that's why such a high number! The average of all the runs was 429 RWHP.

Now that a couple weeks have passed since the gears and dyno tune I have a pretty good idea of the performance improvement. All I can say is.... ! Big Red never pulled so hard and smooth! The gears raised the rpm about 150rpm and I lost about 2 mpg on the highway at 73mph. I really don't care though because the fun factor has just increased big time!

I was getting onto the 400 expressway returning form the maple fest in Wellsville and when the lanes opened up I was in 3rd gear 40mph following a truck. When I floored it to pass the truck it actually surprised me how quick I got to 80mph! The car feels so much lighter now! First gear goes real quick and I really have to get used to shifting faster when I'm getting on it! RDP did a great job and I'm so glad that I did these mods!

Hey Steve take care of my friend pueroricanfont today! I hope you get him to 443 like you did with mine! Of course you'll need a 25 degree morning to do it! Lol!
